Brocolli Curry Recipe

Brocolli Curry

Preparation of Brocolli Curry

Heat the oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds.
When the mustard seeds crackle, add the urad dal, curry leaves and the turmeric powder.
When the urad dal turns brown, add the finely sliced onion and fry it till it is soft
Add the brocolli and saute for about 2 minutes and cover it with a lid on a low flame.
Sprinkle the salt and sambhar powder and fry for about 4-5 minutes until it is cooked

Note: Brocolli cooked directly in a pan on a stove tastes better than cooking it in the microwave.
Brocolli does not taste good if it is overcooked – even a “cooked cold brocolli” tastes better than an overcooked brocolli!!
